Where The Ghost Will Be Tonight: 8/26/17

salim nourallah 2

The month began with the 10 year anniversary of the blog.  Yesterday was the birthday of the man behind The Ghost.  The celebration of said birthday, however, is going down tonight.  So where will The Ghost be, you ask?  The answer is more complex than you might think.

The beginning of the night is straight forward.  I’ll be arriving at Allgood Cafe a little before 8 PM.  I’ll be ordering some of that delicious Allgood chicken fried steak.  The sounds there will be equally tasty, as Salim Nourallah (shown above) will be the musical main entree.  Mr. Nourallah was supposed to be joined by Joe Reyes (Buttercup), but Hurricane Harvey prevented Reyes from making the trek to Dallas.  The show will go on though, and Salim has plenty of material to make a full set.  And while less talented and charming than Reyes, Mr. Nourallah’s boombox will be making a cameo during several songs tonight.  His set should end around 10:30, which will still allow non-night owls to be a part of the birthday celebration.

After Salim, the schedule gets more confusing.  Since I do not know set times for the next three acts, it would be hard for me to determine where I’ll be next.  I do know, however, that I will be hopping at some point between the next three acts.  One of those acts is Nite at Three Links.  The duo will be celebrating the release of Reborn, an album sure to appeal to anyone with a soft spot for 1980’s new wave dance music.  I’m sure I’ll also be in Club Dada to catch a bit of 88 Killa, one of my absolute favorite rappers out of the metroplex.  And lest I should forget Justin Pickard, who always puts on a killer live show.  He’ll be at High and Tight Barbershop.

I do plan on finishing the night off at Adair’s with Midnight County.  It’s lead by Justin Russell, who at one point was lead singer of Public Love Affair.  But it’s Russel’s work with Midnight County that finds him at his vocal peak.  His voice is perfectly suited for country, and Midnight County always manages to put on an entertaining set.

I know that’s a lot of venues in one night.  Keep in mind, however, that three of the venues (Dada, High & Tight Barbershop, and Adair’s) have no cover charge tonight.  Also, I will likely be sending out messages on Twitter as to where I’ll be.  Feel free at any point to stop by and wish a Ghost a happy birthday!
